Love Leo Rescue found Matt on the streets covered in a long, matted fur that made it difficult to see his face. Although the rescuers didn’t know it at the time, underneath the fur was a sweet pup waiting to be pampered!
Sasha, one of the staff at Love Leo Rescue who helped rescue Matt, said they believed Matt had been on the streets for at least a year, given how long and matted his hair was. “He was very sweet, maybe sensed that we were there to help him.” she said.
Matt finally got his haircut, which lasted two hours. After all the fur was gone, he looked like a new dog, and his adorable face and tiny body were visible for the world to see. It didn’t take long before Matt found the perfect forever home.
A woman named Amy adopted Matt, despite having another dog, Penny. Matt and Penny became buddies instantly. Although Matt was unsure about living in the home, he warmed up with Penny’s help.
Matt is enjoying his new life with his new family now. If you see him today, you wouldn’t have guessed he once lived on the streets covered in matted fur.
His favorite activity is floating in the pool all day while being pampered.
